I Want to Know What Love Is

by doodaddy on March 14, 2009

It struck me today that Boo says “I love you” all the time but has never asked me what love is.

It’s a question I fear a heckuva lot more than the ones that seem to make most dads nervous (to wit: “Why is the sky blue?” and “Can I borrow the car?”).

Of course, she also says “concentrate” and “rutabaga” and “wend” all the time, and she’s never asked what those mean, either, so maybe I’m off the hook.

A word I loathe, but that’s cute.

@Xbox4NappyRash – Which word? Rutabaga?

The Evil Genius never asked what “love” meant, either, but he knows what it means nonetheless. Like walking, eating with a spoon, and much of their social interaction, I believe they learn “love” by seeing and then doing.

They know they’re loved, and they know they love, and that’s just fine for now.
